Todas las universidades británicas nos han dicho algo parecido: que apuestan por la internacionalización, que las condiciones actuales para los estudiantes españoles no cambiarán en un futuro inmediato, y que mantendrán su compromiso de colaboración con Europa.

Estimados lectores:

Como ya sabréis, el Reino Unido ha decidido en referéndum abandonar la Unión Europea. Aunque desconocemos aún las repercusiones exactas de esta decisión en el ámbito educativo, sí hemos estado en contacto con un número importante de universidades que nos han transmitido sus posiciones al respecto.

Todas las universidades británicas nos han dicho algo parecido: que apuestan por la internacionalización, que las condiciones actuales para los estudiantes españoles no cambiarán en un futuro inmediato, y que mantendrán su compromiso de colaboración con Europa.

Reproduciremos textualmente lo que nos conmuniquen las universidades:

Universities UK (official statement):
Barring unilateral action from the UK Government, we are advised that the vote to leave the European Union does not mean there will be any immediate material change to the UK university sector’s participation in EU programmes such as Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+, nor to the immigration status of current and prospective EU students and staff.

King’s College London:
King’s remains fully committed to being a multicultural, international university and our European students are a very important part of our community.
The tuition fees for EU-domiciled students are not likely to be affected over the next few years as the UK negotiates its exit from the EU. In the forthcoming academic year, King’s will not increase your fees beyond the small annual inflationary increase. Moving further ahead, any fee amendments will depend on Government legislation. However, we will work with higher education sector bodies to influence future Government policy where we can.

Westminster University:
We are pleased to let you know that there will be no changes to fees for EU students starting studies here in September 2016 who will be charged at the current level for UK/ EU students subject to you successfully progressing each year.

University of the Arts London:
UAL is a place for people to work alongside each other, wherever you were born. We remain committed to this value our EU students’ contribution to the cultural diversity of UK education.
Leaving the EU will undoubtedly have an impact on UAL in the longer-term. We are working on our plans for the transition period and beyond. All of our plans will reflect our ongoing commitment to European collaboration and to all of our students.

Lancaster University:
The actual process of withdrawing from the EU is expected to take considerable time to plan and implement. Lancaster University can confirm that it has no plans to change the tuition fees for EU students that have already been published for 2016/17. EU students who are registered at the university in 2016/17 (either as a new or continuing student) will continue to be charged the home rate for tuition fees for all subsequent years of their programme.

Southampton Solent University:
We have been advised that any future changes will not happen overnight, and it’s important to remind people that the sector’s participation in EU programmes and the immigration status of current and prospective EU students and staff will not see any change for some time to come.
Internationalisation is one of the key priorities for the University and this will not change.

The University of Nottingham:
The University of Nottingham is a global institution – our EU staff and students are a key element of our community and our successes. It is unlikely that staff and students will be affected in the immediate aftermath of the Referendum. This includes the immigration status of EU students and staff, and continued participation in EU programmes, funding and collaborative work.

 

I’d like to stress that the UK has not yet left the EU. Indeed, leaving the EU is likely to be a slow process – and whatever changes take place, we will be ready for them. Once the Prime Minister invokes Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty (the process for an EU member state to leave the Union), there is a two year window for the exit negotiations and changes to law and policy. This will, in all likelihood, be followed by further negotiations with the EU and other international partners on all manner of economic and regulatory matters.
If you are planning to begin your studies in the UK in autumn 2016, please be reassured that the University will continue to treat your status as an EU student throughout your degree course for fee purposes. If you are an undergraduate and apply for a student loan from the Student Loans Company (SLC) for a course beginning in autumn 2016, it will be assessed against the usual criteria – the rules are unchanged. If you are assessed as eligible, you will remain so for the rest of that course. Read the SLC statement here.
If you are planning to begin your studies in the UK in 2017, UK Universities are seeking assurances from the Government that staff and students currently working and studying at our universities can continue to do so after the UK negotiates leaving the EU. As more detail is confirmed, we will update our frequently asked questions for students.
I’d also like to reassure you about the things that aren’t going to change. Nottingham is a great university, with great staff, offering an unforgettable student experience and producing some of the most highly sought-after graduates in Europe. It will continue to do so – and it will continue to have an enthusiastic, global outlook – as we look forward to the new academic year and beyond.

We wanted to reach out to you to let you know that Essex remains committed to being an inclusive, cosmopolitan, and internationally-oriented institution. At Essex we are welcoming of all nationalities – a university where you can find the world in one place.

We know that putting this decision into effect is going to take some time, and we want to reassure you that the UK exit will not impact your students’ application to study at the University this October.

Student Loans Company announces continued funding for EU students
The Student Loans Company has announced that loans and grants will still be available to students starting their studies in Autumn 2016. Students who are eligible for funding will continue to receive this until they finish their course.
You can read the full statement from the Student Loans Company here.
If you would like more information on the funding you can receive and how to apply, contact our Student Financial Support office at financial.support@ntu.ac.uk.
